The Future of Hamble Airfield – What’s Happened Since 4 March 2022?

Hampshire County Council (HCC) has confirmed that they have received around 1,050 representations regarding Cemexโ€™s quarry application. There are still a few more to come โ€“ but Hamble has done its best to make its concerns heard. Thank you and well done to everyone!

No โ€“ responses will still be considered, even though weโ€™ve passed the March 4 deadline.

The quickest way is to:

  • send it by email toยย โ€“ quote ref: HCC/2021/0787 and please include your address

Hamble Parish Council will meet on Monday 14 March 2022 and vote on/confirm our objections, before submitting our response to Hampshire County Council.

Our response to HCC will be shared on our website, in the next newsletter and on social media.

Our response will not cover all issues โ€“ but will focus on the main areas of concern which are linked to issues around: traffic, congestion, safety and air quality, the arrangements for the management of the site, and aspects of the operations such as the offset between peopleโ€™s homes and the activity and the impact it will have on peopleโ€™s quality of life. This doesnโ€™t mean that we donโ€™t think the other areas are important โ€“ rather that we know other agencies are leading on them.

HCCโ€™s case officer for the application will be chasing outstanding responses from Statutory Consultees, and in particular the Highway Authority, before reviewing each of the responses submitted so far. Given the number of responses, this review will take some time. Although things may go quiet for a few weeks, it doesnโ€™t mean that work isnโ€™t happening.
